What Happened To This "Lion King" Character Will Make You Say "Damn, Disney"

Moral of the story: Don't mess with Disney.

Posted on

It's been 23 damn years and I still can't fully process Scar's pettiness. I mean, this evil, power-hungry mofo threw his own brother off a cliff AND THEN manipulated his lovably mischievous cub nephew into believing that Mufasa's death was his fault. SMDH. Pretty dark for a children's movie if you ask me*.

Remember early on in the film when Mufasa asks Zazu, "What am I going to do with [Scar]?" and Zazu replies with the perfectly snarky, "He'd make a very handsome throw rug"?

During a scene in Hercules where the Greek god himself is having his portrait painted on an urn, he is wearing a slain lion's pelt as a headdress*, which he eventually throws onto the ground after having a small temper tantrum.

Presumably the lion on Hercules' head is the Nemean lion from Greek mythology.
